Westin Hotels & Resorts announced plans to debut a new property in Carlsbad. Opening July 12, 2018, The Westin Carlsbad Resort & Spa will feature 208 rooms, including 28 suites with ocean views; a signature restaurant offering farm-fresh ingredients; a luxury spa and state-of-the-art fitness center; and private rooftop terrace with unmatched panoramic views of the coastline.
The property’s bold Mediterranean-inspired architecture and lush botanicals create a seaside oasis perfect for business and leisure travelers alike. Guest rooms and suites range in size up to 1,309 square feet, feature a color palette of coastal hues and include modern textiles, furniture and ocean-inspired artwork.
“We’re truly excited to add a Westin Hotels & Resorts to the community and see this project come to life this summer,” said Chris Draper, Managing Director of The Westin Carlsbad Resort & Spa. “Westin’s commitment to empowering well-being seamlessly fits the Carlsbad lifestyle and we’re looking forward to offering visitors unparalleled experiences in leisure and business travel.”
Named for its picture-perfect views of the Pacific coastline, 20|Twenty Grill, located at the Westin Resort, will be operated by Chef Eddie Zamora. Chef Eddie brings an extensive background in hotel and resort culinary programs, holding various positions throughout his career – from pastry chef to chef de cuisine. The 5,200 square-foot restaurant will offer farm-fresh ingredients, craft cocktails – some even available on tap – and an expansive outdoor dining terrace with fire pits and ocean breezes. Other restaurants on the property include the brand new 7 Mile Kitchen, featuring hand-crafted pizzas, local beer and gelato made with locally sourced ingredients, along with a selection of casual eateries.
A leader in wellness, the WestinWORKOUT® fitness studio allows guests to stay motivated on the road with 24-hour access to state-of-the-art equipment, including TRX functional training gear. As part of the Westin Gear Lending program, guests can also pack light and still stay fit with New Balance workout gear delivered directly to rooms upon request for a nominal fee.
Additionally, the resort’s Ocean Pearl Spa offers a relaxing luxury retreat with coastal charm. Specializing in organic products, advanced skincare and massage therapy techniques, many of the spa’s signature services incorporate marine-based botanicals inspired by the ocean.
Situated atop one of the highest points in Carlsbad, The Water Tower rooftop terrace offers sweeping panoramic views of the coastline. This space can be rented for private functions and is only accessible to property guests. The resort will also include more than 70,000 square feet of immersive meeting space with both outdoor and indoor options for large group events and weddings.
Located near the area’s top activities and points of interest, The Westin Carlsbad Resort & Spa is perfectly positioned to explore an array of things to do in San Diego County, including a private entry into the adjacent LEGOLAND® theme park; The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch; The Crossings at Carlsbad, an 18-hole championship golf course designed by the nationally recognized landscape architect, Greg Nash; and the Carlsbad Premium Outlets, an upscale shopping center featuring top brands in fashion. All guests can enjoy a complimentary shuttle service within a five-mile radius of the resort, and take advantage of the Ride the Tide beach trolley during the summer months.
